    Recently saw a post on an antiSPYWARE forum where
    one of the Experts recommended uninstalling it because
    of their prior track record .
1. Can you post a link to it?
2. Can you explain me what is 'track record'?
Thanks.

Anyway, it's a Czech software. It integrates antivirus and antispyware. It's a freeware. It has some 'freedom' to configuration.
I really like it  :)
I can't see a handicap on it until now... don't seem to be 'stolen' private information, or being adware or spyware, or anything wrong...  ::) ???

 :)  Hi Tech :

     The link of the antiSPYWARE Expert's "best not to have this
     program on one's computer " is :

    http://www.landzdown.com/index.php?topic=9886.45 .

    By "Corrine", Reply #58 .

    I have seen similar comments by other antimalware
    Experts ; the track record is the "note" about it on the
    spywarewarrior "rogue/suspect" site .

Hi Spiritsongs,

"Once a thief, always a thief"is the Dutch proverb, I think this program is in purgatorium now, and we have to see how it behaves in order to lift the ban on it. SpywareGuide does not list it anymore. Scandoo says: use caution, MacAfeeSiteAdvisor gives it the all green. I would say a bit controversial, but working towards a clean bill.

Good day to all,

I've finally made a decision...... I installed SPYWARE TERMINATOR. And it's doing just fine with my computer together with AVAST AV of course. The real time protection is great...... it recently blocked two adwares :

1. SBSoft
2. SbSoft Toolbar

Thanks for all the help....... I think it will be just fine to ask one more question.....
Can anybody advice me what to install for my personal firewall ? A freeware of course.

                                                                       Hoping for more help,
                                                                                    e.g.
                                                                              Philippines

In the sequence (for me, of course):
1. Comodo
2. Kerio
3. ZoneAlarm
4. Sygate
5. Jetico
6. Outpost (free)
